    Blood clotting is a biological process that stops excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured. However, too much clotting inside your body can lead to many life-threatening conditions. Thus, the human body produces some proteins to help regulate this process. Antithrombin III is one such protein that acts as a blood thinner and helps control blood clotting. 
    A blood test can detect the amount of Antithrombin III in your body.

    Specifications of Antithrombin III Test

    The antithrombin III blood test is done to determine the actual cause behind abnormal blood clots inside your body.

    If you develop frequent blood clots, it can indicate a deficient antithrombin III or other clotting factors within your body. This deficiency can result from other health problems like liver or kidney disease. 
    Consequently, it can affect your body's ability to produce enough antithrombin III protein. Deficiency can also result if your body uses excess protein and genetic mutations.

    The results of the antithrombin III blood test help determine whether you have normal levels of antithrombin in the body. Lower levels of antithrombin III can indicate an antithrombin deficiency, which makes you more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other conditions such as phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolus, and heart attack.

    Who Should Get Tested?

    An antithrombin III test is advised when blood clots are formed in your blood vessels. People with blood clotting disorder due to antithrombin III deficiency are at increased risk of developing abnormal blood clots in veins.

    Taking this test early in the ailment will help you diagnose your condition correctly and seek the proper treatment sooner, decreasing your danger substantially.

    Frequently asked questions

    Certain natural defences ensure blood clotting to help prevent your body from bleeding out too much after getting injured. These proteins aid the clotting process and are known as clotting factors. The clotting factors are responsible for maintaining the consistency of blood flow in the blood cells. Specific proteins regulate the blood clotting process, thus ensuring that there is no blockage in blood flow. Antithrombin III is one of those proteins.
    If your body repeatedly creates excessive blood clots that develop in your blood vessels, your doctor may order an antithrombin III test. Blood clots in blood vessels may lead to deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which may lead to blood clots being lodged in your veins. This usually occurs in the legs, and the clot may break free and travel to other body parts. If it travels to the lungs, it may lead to pulmonary embolus, which can be life-threatening. Hence, getting an antithrombin III test is essential to assess the situation.
    If your test results are lower than expected, it could indicate antithrombin III deficiency. This may put you at higher risk for developing deep vein thrombosis, amongst other following conditions: Thrombophlebitis, wherein the veins get inflamed and lead to clot formation Phlebitis, which also causes vein inflammation A heart attack happens when blood clots lodge themselves in the heart's arteries Pulmonary embolus, wherein a blood clot gets in the lung Stroke, if a blood clot reaches the brain
    Antithrombin III deficiency can be due to several factors, which may require further testing. The following conditions may play a role in the deficiency of antithrombin III: Nephrotic syndrome, also known as a kidney disease Trauma Liver failure caused by the scarring of the liver or cirrhosis Specific kinds of cancer like the pancreatic cancer
    If you suffer from antithrombin III deficiency, you must do the following to ensure that you can lower the risk of blood clotting: Do not take hormone therapy Avoid using birth control pills Do not smoke or consume tobacco products in any form Try to exercise and not stay inactive for too long Maintain healthy weight
